Berries and cream lovers (everyone?), this one’s for you! Today I’m sharing a decadent fudge with a creamy coconut butter swirl, and a new super berry you’re going to want to keep on your radar.

Nicknamed “the beauty berry,” schizandra has a gorgeous vibrant purple/pink color, an abundance of antioxidants, and it’s also an anti-inflammatory powerhouse. It’s been widely used in Traditional Chinese Medicine for thousands of years, and for very good reason: schizandra is thought to support everything from adrenal function and our response to stress, to digestive and skin health (hence “the beauty berry” nickname).

If you’re curious to try schizandra berry, one of my all-time favorite brands, REBBL, just launched a new Schizandra Berries & Creme Elixir (plus a new Banana Nut Protein and a 3 Roots Mango Spice Elixir, both awesome FYI). We’ve been collaborating with REBBL for the last three years on recipe development and photography campaigns (see if you can spot our latest work on their Instagram!*), and truly—REBBL is the real deal when it comes to their commitment to wholesome ingredients, sustainability, and innovative flavor combinations. The Schizandra Berries & Creme is fruity and tart thanks to the combination of fresh blueberries, raspberries, pineapple, banana, and elderberries. It’s also lightly sweetened with forest honey and scented with vanilla beans, making it especially perfect as a midday pick-me-up that’s naturally caffeine-free.

I love Schizandra Berries & Creme all on its own, but it’s amazing in dessert recipes too. Currently, one of my favorite ways to use it is in this Berries & Creme Freezer Fudge. The creamy coconut milk base, paired with coconut and cashew butters, is loaded with satisfying and good-for-you fats. Unlike most fudge, this recipe is sweetened with just a small pour of pure maple syrup, then topped with crushed freeze-dried berry “sprinkles” (so cute!). It’s a very simple blender recipe that requires only a handful of basic ingredients and takes just a few minutes to make.

Ingredients

For the berries & creme layer:

  • ½ cup REBBL Schizandra Berries & Creme
  • ¼ cup + 2 tablespoons coconut butter
  • ¼ cup creamy salted cashew butter
  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon pink pitaya powder (optional, for color)
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • ¼ teaspoon fine sea salt

For the coconut butter swirl:

  • 1 tablespoon coconut butter, gently warmed to help it mix in
  • 1 teaspoon unrefined coconut oil, liquid but not hot
  • small pinch sea salt

For topping:

  • freeze-dried raspberries, whole and crushed
  • freeze-dried blueberries, whole and crushed

Cuisine: Gluten Free, Vegan Servings: one 4" x 8" dish (about 12 1-inch servings)

Prep Time: 1 hour 10 minutes

Super berry fudge rippled with a coconut butter swirl, then topped with freeze-dried fruit "sprinkles." This vegan fudge is over-the-top decadent, all without processed sugar or dairy!

Instructions

  • Line a 4" x 8" baking dish with plastic wrap and set it aside.
  • Blend all of the berries & creme layer ingredients together in your blender until smooth. Pour the mixture into your prepared pan and use a spatula to smooth out the top.
  • In a small bowl, make the coconut butter swirl by stirring together the warmed coconut butter, coconut oil, and salt. It should be the consistency of a drippy nut butter for easy swirling. Pour the mixture on top of the berry layer and use a knife to swirl it throughout.
  • Sprinkle the freeze-dried fruit on top. Freeze for 1 hour, or until completely solid. Slice the fudge into squares and enjoy!

Notes [1]

Leftovers should be stored in an airtight container in the freezer. For best and creamiest texture, allow to soften slightly (about 5 minutes) before serving.

    That color is gorgeous! It’s almost unreal it’s so pretty. I’m going to see if I can find this new REBBL flavor at the Whole Foods near me. Their matcha latte is my current favorite drink. I stock up and keep a few at work and I don’t even feel tempted by Starbucks anymore 🙂

    1. Thank you, Kate! I was swooning over the color as well. 🙂 I love that you’ve replaced your Starbucks habit with REBBL’s Matcha Latte! It’s a much better (and tastier) option, in my opinion. 🙂

  2. Hannah says

    You are a swirl master! haha Seriously though. How did you get them to look so perfect?!

    1. Chopsticks! haha I spoon a very small amount of coconut butter on top, then use a chopstick to (gently) make the swirl pattern.

  3. Jessica says

    Yes yes yes! I’m so pumped for this freezer fudge Amanda! I’m one of those weird people who doesn’t like chocolate (I know lol) so this is just perfect for me. Bring on the berries!!

    1. You don’t like chocolate?! Kidding. 😉 I wholeheartedly agree—bring on the summer berries!

  4. Mary says

    It looks so good! I can’t wait to try the new Schizandra flavor. I love REBBL. 🙂

    1. I think you’re going to love this new Schizandra Berries & Creme, Mary. It’s creamy but a little tart…perfect.

    Hi Amanda, I just subscribed to your blog today and I’m glad to have learned something new: schizandra berries! They seem to be the newest discovery. I was curious to know more about this berry and I learned you can find powdered schisandra fruit or fruit extract, you can take schisandra pills/capsules, you can make schisandra teas, tonic or wine as well as indulging your crazy delicious looking dessert, yum!

    1. Yay! Thank you for subscribing, and I’m so happy you learned something new! REBBL actually sent me some of their schizandra in powder form when we were working on a photoshoot for their new flavor, and of course I had to taste it. 😉 It’s very sour/bitter…definitely a lot tastier in their elixir! lol

  6. Jessica says

    This is in the freezer as I type this! (and I cannot wait!)

    1. Awesome! Enjoy, Jessica! 🙂

  7. Alice says

    I made this exactly as written and it turned out perfectly. It’s creamy and rich, but not overly sweet and it doesn’t make my blood sugar spike. Thank you for turning me onto the REBBL drinks. They’re delicious.

    1. Yay! That’s great to hear, Alice!

  8. Ellen says

    This is beautiful, Amanda! I love berries and cream and usually do bowls of sliced strawberries, blueberries and whipped cream sweetened with a little maple syrup. It’s one of my favorite summer indulgences and so easy too. I’ll have to try your freezer fudge soon!

    1. I love the simplicity of summer meals and dessert, when produce is so good all on its own. <3 I hope you'll give the fudge a try soon!

  9. Oh my GOSH this recipe is so amazing! its to die for

    1. Thanks, Ashley! I’m obsessed with the vibrant berry color. 🙂
